Emotional symptoms and mind wandering in ADHD

Professor Phillip Asherson

The ADHD research group at the Institute of Psychiatry Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London, is investigating emotional symptoms and mind wandering in ADHD. We are particularly interested in the emotional symptoms of ADHD. This is because emotional symptoms such as irritability, frustration and anger, are often mistaken for other conditions such as depression, and also lead to significant difficulties in peoples’ lives. Uncontrolled mind wandering is another core aspect of ADHD that leads to marked difficulties in daily life, particularly the inattentive symptoms of ADHD. Both emotional instability and uncontrolled mind wandering may also lead to the development of depression and explain in part why depression is commonly experienced by young people and adults with ADHD.


 

 

The Critical Role of Parents and Teachers in developing resilience in young people with learning and behavioural challenges

Professor Loretta Giorcelli


“ADHD: What’s the HEART of the Matter? Jerry Mills

Rarely will you have the opportunity to gain so much insight from a single training as you will with Jerry Mills, acclaimed American teacher, singer/songwriter and ADHD adult. Having lived with ADHD his entire life, Jerry will address the core issues and problems which comprise “the heart of the matter" when facing the ADHD challenge. He will then provide strategies and solutions to addressing them. Through engaging stories, original songs, humor and personal experience, he will inspire you to see, feel and understand ADHD in a new way.

According to Jerry, “Feelings drive behavior and choices, not just for ADHD individuals but for parents, teachers and all who care about them. Focusing on specific steps we can each take to face these challenges and address the difficulties, I want to leave you inspired, motivated and determined to change what matters most.”

Jerry will also provide strategies to address: Acting Out Behaviors, Classroom Management, Improving Communication, Tailoring Instruction and Structuring the Learning/Living Environment.
